Hello to all, firstly I would like to introduce myself as the newly appointed representative for the Midlands area, Based in Worcestershire I will be bringing further engineering and negotiating skills into the fray.

As you will all be aware there is a lot going on at present, don’t be fooled by what appears to be currently a “phoney war” dealing with Government departments is always in spits and starts, a little flurry of information when the PCB obtained assent, then it all seems quiet, BUT there is continued dialog, when the HO finally release the relevant guidance there will be another sudden flurry of activity and all the required information will be available.

So for now sit tight, stay safe and enjoy the improving weather at your sites.

Tim Bradbury, Midlands Representative UKAPU
